“To support our goal of building a statewide research community, we’re creating an extensible storage environment to increase collaboration and data sharing. DDN’s WOS technology will provide the vital storage framework while leveraging the essence and simplicity of cloud infrastructure to help SSERCA broaden its data-centric research capabilities.”
“The E9000 is designed to overcome the cluster networking limitations of previous generations of blade servers,” said Jane Li, COO, Huawei Enterprise USA. “The Tecal E9000 was designed for application flexibility, as well as to support the next three generations of powerful processors, and the next decade of network technology that will dominate HPC clouds.”
“The industry really needs more than POSIX (open/fopen, read/fread,write/fwrite) and more than simple REST put/get interfaces for data in the future. Neither has the richness to address the myriad of polices that are needed in our future world. I predict that there will finally be some honest discussion about this among the customers that need it and the vendors that could create it.”
“Once in production we will be providing OLCF users with more than 1 terabyte per second file system performance at the top end,” said Sarp Oral, the task lead for File and Storage Systems projects in the Technology Integration Group, within the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS). “At that speed we expect Spider II to be safely in league with the top three parallel file systems in the world.”
